Did you enjoy or even watch the race at Pocono?

Rain delay made the race long.

Should they have waited?

Does NASCAR need to get their butts going on rain gear?

What did you think of Jimmie and Kurt? Who was in the right , in the wrong or just a plain racing incadent?

What did you think of the Brad K win after his crash at Track America?

I never got to watch after the rain delay. we "had" to watch triple D episode that were building up on the DVR. sigh.

I still want to know how Ricky Stenhouse, Jr was able to keep the Nationwide win after getting "help" from Carl Edwards on the final lap.

The rain made it a long day, for those who watched the Red Flag Antics which I did not. Although I have to question NASCAR about the "readiness" of the track because of the weepers at the exit of pit road. If you looked there was water leaking from the track that all the drivers ran through exiting the pits. We all know water and slick tires don't mix and NASCAR was lucky there were no incidents because of water on the tires.

Jimmie and Kurt was just a little rubbin' and rubbin' is racin'. BFD Johnson made an empty threat about "filing away" the incident.

Indifferent about Brad K winning. Yes this gets him into the Chase currently, but I see him as a non-factor and the question becomes who will he knockout that "should" be in the Chase. For the record unless Jimmie Johnson turns stupid and falls out of Chase contention in the next 5 races no one Brad replaces are "Should Be in the Chase" drivers. And yes I am well aware of the Biggie that will probably end up outside looking in again.

any speculation on what JPM will do (contract?)?

May a thousand fleas reside in your armpit, a pox on you. Hater LOL
I loved it when Kurt said in the radio interview, " Mr. 5 Time doesn't like hard racing "

I figure he will renew his contract. There aren't any other rides out there of equal or better running status. He could jump to Gibbs, but I think Montoya is too loyal to Chip for that.

Hater or realist?

August 8, 2011  09:41 AM ET

Wasn't a great race, but wasn't the worst either. I took full advantage of the red flag to take a well earned nap! LOL

JJ is 1 of my fav divers, but what I saw live and on replays was that he drove down into Kurt and Kurt returned the favor. I also agree with Kurt in that he had no obligation to pull over for JJ. Hopefully JJ looks at the tapes and lets it go.

Good race but my guy Jeff didn't get it together till late. Lil E did fairly well. Switched to golf during Red Flag. Great to see Steve get a win with Adam.

I saw a report that the caddy, who was Tigers previously, earned more for the job than Tiger earned in the game.

Agreed 100% I have been a realist in the matter of the adored one and have gotten the hater catcall a few times. LOL

Here's an interesting thought I had:

Joey Lagono, Sliced Bread, has not lived up to the hype so far in his career. This has lead to some (Pond) to call him Stale Bread. But what happens when he finally grows up and develops a beard like Jimmie Johnson will that make him Moldy Bread?

1. Yes, other than the rain delay, it was good racing.

2. Yes, they should have waited. The fans in the stands paid good money for 500 miles, and really it was only a 2 hour rain delay, I've sat in the stands for longer delays in Atlanta.

3. Jimmie was clearly in the wrong. He came down on Kurt, and Kurt came up on him. It's called racing, but I'm not surprised that a Hendrick driver gets all butt hurt because somebody didn't move over and let them pass with only a couple laps to go. Way to not back down Kurt. Put Jimmie in the sand traps next weeks at the Glenn.

4. Brad K is my second favorite driver, so I loved the win. He held off a complete tool to win. His pit strategy might have put him up front, but his driving kept him up front. Now he's set to make the Chase.

August 8, 2011  11:08 AM ET

Oh, and Brad K had one of the classiest Victory Lane interviews of all time. I'm not sure what makes him snot nosed.

August 8, 2011  11:27 AM ET

One other quick note. The last few races it's been a fight to the finish. Gotta say I like it better than the lead driver a half lap ahead of the field...

August 8, 2011  11:42 AM ET

Logano was running sixth when he had a tire go down so all in all he was having a decent day.

I was thinking to myself before the rain that I wondered if 88 and 24 were laying back. Both went giddyup when the rains got close and were in the top ten, but neither had shown squat prior to that
